Glad to see Cathy Marston's Mrs Robinson gets a definitive outing ... The programme of new works for 2023 also sounds exciting ... given the success of the Unbound Festival.

San Francisco Ballet are doing a digital season 7 shows from Nutcracker to the end of June. It looks interesting and I remember how much I enjoyed all their ballets in lockdown.

Plus we get the delayed premiere of Cathy Marston's Mrs. Robinson.  That does sound enticing.

Wonderful news from SFB! A true digital season with complete works - either full-evening ballets or triple bills of complete one-act works. However, it is not cheap - $34 for access to 1 show (for 24 hrs) or $289 for full season pass (longer access for ea show).

 

The latter half of PacificNW Ballet’s digital season  will also be like this...full works in spring/early summer.

I have been gifted the whole season and apart from being very excited about this I wondered if anyone has a good knowledge of SFBlallet dancers and who I could be looking our for. I will also post as I watch, though I am not as knowledgable as many on here I hope to give you a flavour of them.

Lovely review! Yes, I watched it this afternoon and also thought this was a beautiful production. A very enjoyable start to the digital season 🙂

 

Thank you! And I agree; the entire season looks great.

I found I had to set a password first, after clicking on the link in an email I was sent. On the login I clicked the set new password button. Once I'd done all that and signed in, I was directed to a page with the stream (think I had to scroll down a bit to get to it). This is all assuming you watch on a laptop, I didn't try the other options.

From today's Links, an announcement by SFB that the premiere of Cathy Marston's Mrs Robinson has had to be dropped for Covid related 'obstacles' and that an existing film of her Snowblind will be substituted.

That’s too bad but understandable in these times. 

Luckily, the troupe just made a 48-minute sampler of its recent virtual gala available to view for one week via YouTube. This  includes a pdd from Mrs. Robinson that Cathy Marston and the dancers were able to create.

Many thanks - and well, well.  What a predatory Mrs R - Anne Bancroft should be proud!  (At around 28 minutes in).

 

(Entirely by the way - is it correct that Ms Bancoft did not supply the arched leg for the legendary film poster ... and that it was Linda Gray, of Sue Ellen and Dallas fame?)
